According to a publication, Hausa Christian Foundation (HCF), Mani has been allegedly abducted, forcefully converted to Islam and married off to her abductor at Gidan Dandada Rafin Iyaka, in Sabuwa Kasa Kafur Local Government Area of Katsina State.
 
In a report published by the foundation on Thursday, the conversion and marriage was said to have been carried out by the District Head of Kafur. 
 
According to the report, Aisha went missing from home on 10th February, 2021. 

Two days later, her parents received a call from the District Head of Kafur telling them to stop searching for Aisha because she is safe with him in his house.
 
He claimed that one Idris Shehu brought her to his house and when Aisha’s family went to see the District Head at his palace to bring their daughter back home, he refused to release her on the ground that she wanted to convert to Islam.
 
Ten days later, the District Head called Aisha’s parent to tell them that one Mohammed Sama’ila wants to marry Aisha their daughter but they rejected the proposal.
